ACK! I can't see the image...photo bucket is blocked at work!
The only advice I can give (since I can't see the image) is to try different settings within the scanner itself (photo, text, lower resolutions, no sharpening etc. etc.). Turn off any custom filters (newspaper, magazine etc.) if applicable.
You could also clean the scanner glass with Windex (or any glass cleaner)....spray the cleaner directly onto a lint free cloth then wipe the glass down. Also, put a solid white piece of paper on top of the image (3-5 pages would be better), as this will help to avoid the scanner picking up what's on the other side of the image, like the scanner cover.
I'll look at the image when I get home and hopefully will be able to give some better advice!
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
